Pursuant to the Supreme Court's ruling in People of the Republic of Atlasia vs. Snowstalker, Mr. Snowstalker is hereby de-registered as a voter.  Mr. Snowstalker will be permitted to register when his three year ban from voting is expired, after October 22, 2017.

Lief recently changed his party name to Vermont National Party.

I am working on updating the voter list right now.

(If its good for Maxwell, its good for me).

ChairmanSanchez, you moved from Florida to New York last Tuesday:

ChairmanSanchez

New York

You are therefore blocked from changing regions again until April 12, 2015.  You remain registered in New York, but your party change is noted.

Nobody has asked for my opinion of this.  Why is that?

I see no reason for making any change.  There was a time when de-registration was not allowed, and of course there was a battle in the senate to pass a bill permitting it.  My opinion is, de-registration absolutely should be allowed, as it removes some clutter from the rolls of people who intend to be inactive.  There must be some time limit before returning, or else the whole concept of de-registering is pretty meaningless.  Making de-registration a permanent thing would block potentially active members from contributing, and would hurt the game overall.  Extending the time limit to 6 months would, again, block potentially active members from contributing, at least for an additional 4 months, which would be harmful to the game.  The 60 day rule seems to me to be an appropriate length of time.  I therefore oppose this bill, but will abide by it if passed.

As for my workload, I honestly think I have the easiest job in Atlasia, and I will keep it as long as Presidents let me.  Cheesy  Seriously, though, the proposed bill would actually increase my workload, not reduce it.

Please remove me from the voter registration list.

You can de-register

I am treating this as a formal declaration of de-registration.

As President Tyrion has been banned, he is now de-registered.  He may register anew when his ban is lifted.

Now that I don't need to campaign underground, I visit Cincinnati Ohio in the Mideast to talk about Hands off approach with the Senate and the regions.

In regards to legislation, ideally during a Hands off mandate the President will not introduce legislation in the Senate for domestic affairs. The Senate will have more autonomy. It is composed of people from various parties and opinions and these people will have the responsibility to get a majority to agree. They will be more careful of the bills they write since there will not be sending a bill back and forth between the Senate and President. That doesn't mean the President is absent or doesn't care. If he wants to intervene about legislation, make a suggestion, express concerns or speak in opposition, he will do so in the bill discussion thread or the Senate protest thread like every other citizens can do.

Bills that get a majority in the Senate will get signed. So more autonomy and responsability for Senate in crafting bills. That will remove a reason for conflict with the President and everyone will be happier and more satisfied. I said ideally the President will not introduce legislation. Sometimes unexpected things happen and I could be forced to do it. There could be an emergency or crisis or if there is no bills in the queue left I could introduce one inspired by topics I discussed in my Senate campaigns.



The Hands Off approach with the regions is a respect for the regions. Autonomy in regions will make the regional assemblies feel empowered. It will be more interesting to craft regional bills. Regional politics will matter more. Each region can have its distinct flavor. I will not let the federal government override a regional bill just because some people don't like it and want to strip a region of its decision. If a citizen feel a regional bill is against the law he can ask the appropriate court to rule on it but I don't want the federal level to follow the regions and outlaw what they have done if it's legal just because other people or regions don't agree with something.   

Hands off the senate and regions to give more autonomy to the Senate and regions.


So, let me get this straight...you will sign any bill that the senate sends you, veto nothing, and play no part in the legislative process whatsoever.  Is that right?

I am preparing a revised version of the by-laws, but in doing so, I would like to solicit some feedback from the rank-and-file.

What would you like to see done differently in Labor? How can we do things better? One proposal I'm toying with is term limits for members of the Politburo and requiring a pledge for officeholders to retire after a certain number of consecutive terms in one position or another. I think that both of these would strengthen our party because they would open up avenues for new members to get involved. What do you all think?

The potential downside to that is, there may come a time when a position holder is willing and able to continue beyond the term limit, and there are no other members who want that job- or perhaps the willing individual would be a bad fit for that job.  I would oppose term limits for officeholders.

As far as things that could be changed, I would suggest we dispense with the [CON], [BYL], etc. in these conventions.  Only Griffin is paying attention to doing that anyways.

There are few Wal-Marts in Minnesota largely because that market is dominated by Target stores here.

If it is not in the Constitution, I won't use it.

I'm not sure how to interpret this...are you rescinding your request?

I suppose I am, yes.

Okay...I modified the statistics post above.  The voter list will have to wait until the next update.

Governor Varavour has requested of me that The People's Region of the Pacific be referred to by its full name, abbreviated herein as "TPRP".

Can we not do that? It sounds Soviet.

If I continue to receive complaints from Pacific residents, I could go back to using the term "Pacific".
